Missing sunroof..

Hey all, been looking through some of the threads in regards to sunroof problems, resetting the tracks, and doing a system reset. Anyhow, didn't find a specific answer to my concern except the idea of people deleting and plugging the sunroof.

I bought my 2000 focus zts a few months ago for a daily as I also have a 2004 Mach 1 mustang that most of the spending cash goes into. I was thinking about keeping this focus just for a daily, but I am thinking of putting a bit of money in to it and keeping it for a while. I got it for $2200 with 95k miles with everything in good order except for the sunroof.

Looks like the previous owner took out the tracks, motor, and glass. Put some piece of heavy foam or something with a vinyl sheet glued around it to the roof opening and roof liner sliding part. Looking to see what exact parts I will need and what I should be looking at as far as parts costs. Thanks

Appreciate it, I was looking a couple of weeks ago but wasn't ready to get moving on it. I searched eBay today and nothing is up. Also trying to find install directions / parts list

Might be hard to find any kinda` directions for doing this . Might be better off going to a junk yard and remove it yourself so ya` know how to reinstall . Heck , they might even have a video for this on youtube . Good luck ! peace

If i'm not mistaken, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, a sunroof was not an option for 2000 model foci. It became an option in '01 but as a crank sunroof only, then power in 2002. Sounds like maybe he attempted to put a sunroof in himself by cutting out a hole in the roof and then realized it wouldn't work. What does the sunroof switch look like? Or is there one?

There is a switch on the headliner above the rear view mirror. It's a late 2000 model according to the vin. Everything looks factory on the headliner, just missing the actual glass and tracks

If everything was easy, nothing would be innovated. It can be done, just need the correct measurements and able to make sure it has the capability of sliding back

Some members have done a panoramic sunroof with a sliding vinyl top (fold back).

Check out the "album" areas for pictures & info. if you're interested (or if you find damage that would make returning it to stock difficult/impossible.

Cheers!
